Most of you know that hubby will retiring this summer after 32+ years of service with the State of Delaware. Although he will be leaving the School District he won’t be leaving the workforce…at least not entirely. He may not know where the next phase of life will take him, he does vow not to have to wear a suit and tie again.
So with a closet full of them, where will they go after my sons have raided his closet, the answer is simple, they will be donated to Goodwill. Hubby may be leaving his job, but in donating his suits, ties, suspenders and shoes he will be helping to create jobs for others.
Using this online Goodwill Donation Calculator we can determine just how much our donations will be helping the community. For example, one man’s suit will provide 14 minutes of resume preparation and a pair of shoes will provide 19 minutes of the same.
Try it out for yourself as you pack up your donations.
You may not be leaving a job, but if your spring cleaning includes clearing out a cluttered closet to make room for more stuff, pack it up and donate it to Goodwill.
I’ll be the first to admit it, but hubby isn’t the only person that needs to clean out their closet…mine is due for some serious purging…need to make room for new shoes!
For more information on just how your donations work, check out this “How We Do It” PSA.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
This month is running wild and flying by way too quickly, there has been a whirlwind of activity in my life and that’s not even including the last snowstorm of the season. (fingers crossed) All of it has definitely been wonderful and exciting, some I can speak about, others not just yet, but it’s all good news!
- I lost my 2005 Hyundai Sonata due to engine failure and replaced her with a 2010 Hyundai Accent.
- Hubby completed his retirement paperwork, so on July 1st, he will officially be retired from the State of Delaware – congrats, I’ll give you the “honey-do” list on the 1st of August, a few weeks before our 24th Wedding Anniversary.
- The 2014 Goodwill Runway Show was fantastic, I hope you had an opportunity to read the post, if not, click here. I twisted my ankle a few hours before the event and had to change shoes 3 times, but thankfully, it wasn’t worse and I made it through the night with a smile!
On Tuesday I taught a Blogging 101 Class which is sponsored by The Money School of Delaware and there were some awesome attendees whose participation was great.
Tomorrow the temps are expected to reach the upper 50’s, so if you are getting a jump on your Spring Wardrobe don’t forget to enter to win a $50 Gift Certificate to Midnight Velvet.
Now, let’s get this party started!

The event, which runs from 6-9:00 p.m., will recognize the Fashion Awards nominees featured in the September issue of Delaware Today magazine. The nominees were selected by the public through an online voting process; however an esteemed panel of fashion experts will choose the winners. With categories ranging from makeup artist to photographer, and boutique to best-dressed Delawarean, the Delaware Today Fashion Awards will identify a wide range of fashion professionals, from promising new talents to established forerunners who have influenced fashion in the community.
The winners from each of the 11 categories will be revealed live at the event. As mentioned, Delaware Today has partnered proudly with a variety of fashion experts to serve as judges. They include: Joan Bernard, owner of Barbizon Modeling & Talent Agencies in Wilmington and Philadelphia; Kelly Cobb, designer and assistant professor of Fashion and Apparel Studies at the University of Delaware; Colleen Moretz, fashion designer and owner of Colleen Couture; and Dallas Shaw, fashion illustrator and style expert. Ms. Shaw also graces the cover of the September issue of Delaware Today.
